Evelyn’s relationship with the Foundation began in 2016 when she received a Silver Scholarship from the Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund. Soon afterward she joined the staff as an intern, helping out with the day-to-day tasks of the office at the front desk with a specific focus on the scholarship program. Her role has evolved to Program Associate, now supporting the Early Childhood team.
